The latest odds are in ahead of the Dancing On Ice 2019 live final tonight – but who will win?
At the weekend, Brian McFadden became the latest celeb to be eliminated from the competition, leaving just three contestants on the series.
Following each of the celeb’s latest live performances, it was Westlife star Brian who was voted off Dancing On Ice 2019 after the skate off against X Factor’s Saara Aalto.
Alongside Saara, those in the Dancing On Ice final are former Strictly Come Dancing pro James Jordan and Love Island’s Wes Nelson.
Ahead of tonight’s show, things have taken a drastic turn in the Dancing On Ice outright betting with Wes knocked of the top spot only to be replaced by James Jordan in the crucial stages of the competition.
Former professional dancer, James Jordan was very much in Wes’ shadow in the weeks leading up to the final, but he has leapfrogged the Love Island star just before they face the final hurdle following an influx of bets.
James is now the odds-on red-hot favourite at 4/7 to take the title having been 9/4 before the burst of fresh support poured in.
Wes, who was tipped as the unstoppable 4/9 favourite at before last weekend’s performances, has suffered a drastic and possibly debilitating drift out to 6/4 second favouritism.
Sarra Alto escaped yet another skate off after Brian McFadden’s unfortunate fall in his bottom two routine saw him sent packing. However, the X Factor runner-up will go into the final as the firm 16/1 outsider to win.
Aoife Heffron, Spokesperson for BoyleSports commented: “It looked as though the Dancing On Ice title was Wes Nelson’s and the final was going to be more of a formality as he headed into the semi-finals as the 4/9 favourite, but after James Jordan pulled off a perfect score of 80 for his two performances, punters rallied to snap up his odds and our traders had no choice but to slash him into the new 4/7 favourite.”
However Wes isn’t going to give up the title without a fight.
According to The Sun newspaper, he spent 12 hours a day rehearsing for the latest live show.
“Wes and Vanessa were rehearsing for 12 hours straight last week,” a source told the tabloid. “That’s a serious amount of time on the ice, taking breaks of course, just to get things right.
“Being on the ice is just the distraction he needs right now, especially with everything that’s going on with Megan.”
The Dancing On Ice 2019 live final airs tonight on ITV from 6PM.
Alongside the performances from the finalists, the entire line up of this year’s celebs will reunite while Torvill & Dean will skate with the professionals.
